obama and mitt romney are competing for votes. they spent part of their time in ohio. both candidates are hoping 11th hour stops will change the way voters will go. and that could make or break the bid for the white house. it takes 270 electoral votes to win it all. experts suggest both candidates are trying to increase their chances of winning on tuesday. >> if the president wins florida, the election is over. ohio, in many respects, is the pivotal state. can romney find a path towards the presidency without ohio? and i would say that with wisconsin in play and that being a home state advantage for ryan, that wisconsin gives an alternative. >> and both campaigns are expected to cris cross one another this weekend in swing states like new hampshire, iowa and virginia. >>> voters turned out on the final day of early voting. 90,000 voters cast their ballots. numbers have been huge eve within the disruption of hurricane sandy. >> samantha burrell wasn't expecting to be met with cheers at her voting location on friday. but that's exactly what she got. she's a proud first time voter and an
messages so far, both attacking governor romney. we'll debate what and who is behind these messages, right after this break. >> i have four generations of family on this earth and my life has been very blessed, and if the republicans steal this election i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him -- megyn: fox news alert on a little bit of good news for the more than 9 million people commuting in and out of new york city. the governor just announced there will be some limited service on the two commuter rail systems in and out much new york later today. but officials are estimating full service will not be fully restored for weeks if not months. and this could have a big impact even beyond the borders of the big apple. trace gallagher is live with the update. >> reporter: nobody knows which service will come online tomorrow or the day after. in the tristate area people use this every day. the transportation authority said of the 5,000 square miles they cover, not a single corner went untouched. 36 hours after the floodwaters came into the subway stations, the floodwaters remain. the e

barack obama and a mitt romney will be making a mad dash across the electorial map seeking the last swing state votes. >> both candidates land in ohio today. so far this is what their schedules look like. gov. romney visits seven states, including a rally in ohio with 100 supporters, politicians, and celebrities. he argued the president is running out of steam. >> he was the other day talking about saving characters on sesame street am playing word games with my name and attacking me on a regular basis -- attacks he knows are not true. >> president obama will visit 11 states with a focus on ohio. he will be there every day between now and the election making the argument, highlighting higher home prices and victories overseas. >> osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress the past four years. but the president picked up an endorsement from new york mayor michael bloomberg it. he said new york is to busy for a presidential visit, but he writes applauding the his record on climate change. how will it all shake out on tuesday? >> i think mitt romney has a 50-50 chance to win the pop
available friday. meantime, both president obama and mitt romney have put their campaign trips on hold because of the storm and the need to deal with this aftermath. >>> a deadly school bus accident in northern kentucky monday afternoon, two pre-schoolers were killed when their bus overturned and slammed into a tree. four other children were taken to local hospitals. the bus driver escaped without being harm. the cause of this crash is still under investigation. >>> a shuffle for apple executives after some embarrassing software glitches and retail staff cuts. software chief scott forestall will be leaving next year. the reason, reported lit glitches in apple maps which gave users some faulty directions. >>> a new study out today in "atlantic journal" shows while mammograms provide a life-saving diagnostic tool in the fight against breast cancer, they also cause doctors to treat some women unnecessarily. the british panel found that for every life saved, three women are overdiagnosed, treated for cancer that would never have threatened their lives. >>> the u.s. geological survey says a
. with next tuesday's outcome very much in doubt, both sides tried out their final pitches to voters in key battleground states. >> mitt romney went to virginia, a swing state where the race is tight and made his closing argument. >> if the president were to be reelected, you will see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, just like we have seen over the last four years. >> his new ad is positive. >> but the former governor's path to a win looks difficult. he is down by six points in iowa and closer in new hampshire and wisconsin. >> that is where air force one when today -- green bay. president obama back on the trail after suspending campaign for hurricane sandy. >> we know what things look like and what the government is -- with the governor is softener -- with the governor is offering is not change. leaving millions without health insurance isn't change. >> his new ad features: paul. >> the president saved the auto industry and the actions he had -- he is taking -- he has taken protecting us from terrorism have been solid. >> the ads are an acknowledgement that go
look at virginia, 7:00 p.m., and florida. if you believe mitt romney is narrowly ahead in both of those states, how quickly do we call them? does he win virginia by two or three points, florida by two or three points? if that's the case, it's likely we're close to calling those states by 9:00. now, look at ohio. a poll closing at 7:30. if the president has a three, four, five-point lead like these polls show, that's a state we'll be calling a lot earlier. but then i say keep an eye on pennsylvania. if we haven't called it by 9:00, if we're still in a too close to call mode, lester, that tells you maybe romney's having a pretty good night. >> and as we watch these swing states come together here, each candidate really has a legitimate path to victory, correct? >> they do. and i wanted the show you sort of what i would call the easiest paths, if you will, for the two of them. for the president, it's pretty simple. if you look at his campaign schedule, it shows you they believe it's simple. ohio three times. and he goes to wisconsin twice. if he just wins those two states, look at his numb
on that in just a couple of minutes. >> all right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have
, shrinking federal government, that's mitt romney. so for all the talk of bipartisanship we've heard in the last two weeks from both candidates, there's not a lot of bipartisanship out there. >> when you speak to republican voters, you've been out around the country a lot, there is a real sense that they are very angry with what's this president has done to the country in terms of expanding government. do democrats feel the same about what mitt romney would do if he were president? >> they do, although in a sense it's a bit below the surface, since they're not experiencing it right now. but we have a similar experience under george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we have a narrow result, because that will mean the new president, whoever he is, doesn't have a terrif
areas facing president obama and governor mitt romney. >> you could have mitt romney winning the popular vote but losing the electoral votes. >> 270 electoral votes are needed for the presidency. both candidates could fall short. >> if you have the right combination of states brea king, you could have an electoral vote tied. which would be a real mess. >> double the the decision up to congress. >> be pushing to relatively unknown territory -- we would be pushing into relatively unknown territory. >> mitt romney would be favored to win if the house keep the republican majority in the senate and let the vice president and that stays in the hands of democrats, joe biden will probably be their pick. most presidential prognosticators say it is not likely at this point but not totally out of the realm of possibility. >> new york city mayor and john hopkins university graduate michael blumberg was in baltimore tonight to rally for the civil marriage protection act. the mayor said that for him, there are many reasons to support same-sex marriage. >> we are just a few days away from making histor
to be consistent ones that we see. so you see both the obama campaign and romney campaign blanketing wisconsin, for instance, with surrogates. we saw vice president biden here last week as well as senator rubio, a key surrogate for mitt romney. last night, bill clinton was here. he is here this morning. yesterday vice presidential candidate paul ryan was here. we'll also be seeing, of course, president obama here today. you know, it's really interesting. something i want to point out, charles woodson of the green bay packers will be here to rally this crowd here at the airport ahead of president obama. he is the safety for the green bay packers. if you know about football, what does the safety do? they protect against long passes against, that's right, the hail mary, something the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> i like that football metaphor. i don't usually follow them all that closely. but thank you, brianna. appreciate it. little bit of a rough morning. traffic was terrible for you. >> yes. >> plus that three person rule. >> we had to drive around brooklyn, pick up cnn
this on tuesday? >> the way we look at this is both short term and medium to longer term. short term, if romney gets in, then the market could actually suffer a little bit if he starts to be a bit more conservative on the fiscal side, obviously there is talk bernanke won't get a second term. who will come in. in terms of longer term, america has to tackle the fiscal deficit. if it continues to have a trillion dollar deficit every year, that will be a long term negative. so maybe the romney/ryan ticket is longer term positive. >> and jim, what prospect is there at this point for any resolution of the fiscal cliff before year end regardless who have is in the white house? >> i don't expect it to be resolved before year end. and i think the best scenario is a temporary stay of execution. go into maybe march or something where there will have to be some big decisions made both on tax reform and entitlements. but i think there will be a ton of uncertainty heading in to 2013. >> thank you again for getting up for us. be safe on your way back. and as mentioned, we want your hurricane stories. especial
for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged off the notion of political calculus in an interview last flight. >> the president does things that deserve praise, i will give him praise. and when the president does things that deserves scorn i'll give him scorn. when someone asks me an honest question i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he's been outstanding to deal with on this and i look forward to see him tomorrow. >> mitt r
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michiga
've got ads from both sides running, and ad that has become infamous romney totally perverting the reality on what happened with the auto bailouts. let's show you that and get your reaction. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama. fact checkers confirm his attacks on mitt romney are false. the truth, mitt romney has a plan to help the auto industry. he's supported by lee lee iacoca. >> >> cenk: pants on fire in many ways we've explained. does it matter what the truths is if you can buy an alternate reality? >> you can't buy and alternate reality. the auto workers in ohio understand that the evident on the government on their behalf was real and had real impact. i don't think that when it comes to ohio that mitt romney's going to be able to arrive at the white house in an american made car. [ laughter ] >> cenk: well, i understand that his wife has several cadillacs so it's possible. so, let's talk about why you think ohio, if you think that, as you just indicated, why it's solidly in president obama's camp. >> well, at this point president obama, if you look at all the
the romney evideneffort and how it transpid today? holding this evident to raise both funds and food stuff, and kind of, you know, talk about giving and how that played today? >> what else do you do? >> bret: right. >> a moment fraught with peril for the challenger particularly. you don't want to be accused and the press is a hair trigger when it comes to accusing romney of misusing the moment. >> bret: then he did today. >> of course, but you don't want to be accused. that is fair or unfair. >> every day i wake up for two weeks and say maybe it's frozen in stone. maybe the race is already decided. i don't know the outcome but the people who don't know who they are going to vote for and/or going to vote could if it in this room and not touch each other. it's possible that none of this matters. >> bret: yeah. if the race is frozen, you look at how many states say the early vote, chuck, has been overwhelming. some report says 40% of the state early vote. >> i don't know if it's true that we four are the remaining people to decide. tucker is probably right. you could fit the undecided people
water. and just one week from election day, both president obama and mitt romney, they are shifting their focus. they are responding to the disaster without trying to appear overly political. >> i'm wolfe blitzer. you're in the situation room. >> today. >> right now the storm is over pennsylvania. torrential rain and in some places, blizzard conditions. here is the big picture as best we know it. 67 in the caribbean. close to 8 million customers in 15 states and the district of columbia have no electricity. spent last night in red cross operated shelters. this may be the worst storm ever to hit new york city. one of the biggest challenges is where the massive subway system is shut down, tunnels and stations are filled with high water. no idea when the trains will be running again. this is a difficult situation. take a look at laguardia airport. the runways are submerged and levels were so high they reached the jet lanes where people usually walk on to the planes. an entire neighborhood is destroyed by fire. at least 80 homes burned to the ground in the new york burro of queens. this
of destruction to the past 2270 electoral votes. he will hit wisconsin and colorado. in florida, mitt romney backed off on aggressive attacks as signals those struggling from the aftermath of the storm. >> keep people in your thoughts and prayers. >> both candidates will refocus. >> memories are short so by the weekend, we will be focusing again on the candidates. >> it has a been up to the surrogates to do the slamming. jeb bush said choice words about president obama. >> is entire strategy is to blame on others starting with my brother, of course. >> vice president joe biden returned the favor with a swipe at romney in the sunshine state. >> his plans are not sketchy, they are etch-a-sketchy. >> mayor ron may well come out to our region in virginia. they want to extend hours for early absentee voting. >> many states have early voting this year and it is having an impact on the election? >> many people have done this so far, more than 19 million people across the country have cast ballots early and in maryland, the number is close to 193,000 people. that is more than double the people who v
on the tv. it's in person as well. both candidates have been making a ton of visits to the state. president obama will be here in briscoe later on this afternoon. governor romney will make one more visit to virginia in the next three days before ballots are cast. big part of mitt romney's catch has been to military voters. the two biggest cities in virginia are virginia beach and norfolk. they both have enormous military populations. mitt romney has been telling them that if he is elected president, he will stop to sequester those automatic defense cuts. listen to this. >> the strong american military, so strong no one would think of testing it. so strong that people would rather meet us on the bargaining table than on the battlefield that is essential to us and to the world. unlike the president, i will will restore that funding to our military. >> mitt romney has also been in virginia to help george allen get elected to the u.s. senate. allen is a former senator and governor of virginia. and he is trailing right now in the real clear politics average of polls to another former governor of
efforts making very dramatic efforts not only to educate voters. both campaigns have aggressively gone after the latino vote. governor romney has reached into new territory and did it much earlier in a primary season than anybody else. there are high positives there. >> but the fact is that it's republican ladies and gentlemen laters and republican governors and states led by republicans where we're seeing concentrated voter suppression efforts. >> i want to address that. there was a bipartisan effort that talked about we need add unified form of identification, they needed to have some sort of paper ballot or trail where we can see where people's vote counted. there's an intense amount -- >> but to say in the 1970s there was a bipartisan effort to think about how to make voting more standard across all 50 states is very different than the kind of -- >> i'm talking about 2005. this is post florida -- >> i see. >> i think in agreement it's criminal to try to suppress -- >> yet that is really quite different, myrna in terms of the state-by-state individual efforts. i want to press on the
, women -- why women like obama. is he a family man. he's been there with us. and mitt romney is never. >> when is this president going to take responsibility for the 47 months of his presidency? you can't have it both ways. you can't say, oh, i inherited a mess and, oh, i got osama bin laden but i didn't use the intel from the four years before that. >> yes, you can. >> you can't have it both ways. >> i'm not really sure that barack obama can turn it around in the next four years. and i don't think mitt romney can either. it's going to take time. >> frank luntz is with us now from cincinnati. good morning. if you look at these focus groups and what they said, is the cake baked in ohio for one of the two candidates? >> it's a challenge for president obama to win over the men, it's a challenge for mitt romney to win over the women. you heard it. it's like whiplash. gender has an impact, age has an impact, obviously ethnicity has an impact. ground zero. $30 million were spent in the last week. i'm told they're coming close to the $200 million mark in ohio for the campaign. that is uns pr
. >> it's one of several scenarios facing president obama and grand rapids. >> you could have romney winning the popular vote but losing the electoral vote. >> 270 electoral votes are needed to clinch the presidency but in another hypothetical, george condon says both candidates could fall short. >> if you have the right combination of states breaking, you could have an electoral vote tie of 269-269. >> that would leave the decision up to conditioning. >> we start pushing into relatively unknown territory of the house of representatives the president. >> if the house keeps its republican majority, mitt romney be favored to win the white house but the senate elects the vice president and if that stays in democrats' hands, joe paterno -- jacoby brissett would probably be their pick. a romney-biden administration? most say it's unlikely but not out of the realm of possibility. >> new york mayor and john's hopkins university graduate michael bloomberg stood along with mayor stephanie rawlings-blake and governor o'malley in support of the same-sex marriage act. >> we are a few days away f
221. 180 in romney, 26 lean romney for 206. this will be a close election. it will center on the nine states with 111 electoral college votes. a path for the victory for both candidates there. if you have the momentum, we saw the poll over the weekend in ohio. the showing of the newspaper association poll showing a dead even race in ohio. five points for obama. when they last tested here a number of weeks ago. shows momentum on romney side. the question is does he have momentum to push him perhaps 270. >> bret: quick answer of impact of the storm, hurricane sandy and what it means for the race? >> could it mean -- i think it's freezing the race. it's hard for either romney or obama to break through with new, with some new initiative while everybody is focused on sandy. i don't think it affects the turnout. >> bret: karl? >> it could effect turn-out. people affected by this; particularly, people unable to cope with it might be less likely to turn out. let's see when the storm hits. when it passes. if people can put themselves back together. the other thing is it will push the campaigni
the perception of which campaign has the momentum. both are now advertising in three new normally reliable democratic states, michigan, minnesota and pennsylvania. the romney campaign says it's evidence they have expanded the map. the obama campaign says it's a sign that mr. romney has run out of routes to 270 electoral votes, the number needed to win so they are throwing hail marys in new states. little evidence to back up obama spin on that, savannah. three new polls out from the "new york times" showing the president leading narrowly in three states, pennsylvania, maryland and ohio. >> tamron hall is over at the news desk. new york. >> reporter: offer closing its doors for two days for the first time in its decade they reopen this morning. cnbc's mandy drury is there. mandy, good morning. >> reporter: thanks for that. the lights are own and traders have returned to business. hopefully things returning to normal. mayor bloomberg is ringing the opening bell after two days of being in the dark. we've not seen close here in the markets in the united states for 1888 for two days due to a wea
been top surrogates for romney. >> right. right. and i will say that is the silver lining in the horrible tragedy, is you have both sides really working together and very closely, and we don't have to throw stones either way. we can just celebrate that. unfortunately it has taken this to create that but both sides are working together seemingly very well and hopefully the folks on the east coast will get some relief. >> stephanie: we have had other obama surrogates on, and why are our surrogates so much hotter than theirs including you. >> i was about to say i will take myself out of that, and just appreciate their hotness -- >> stephanie: and we will put you right back in. >> yes, what i think we're missing is an actual statistical breakdown of our surrogate hotness.
